TST is a good unit along with Edge. These are my two favorites. I am running an EZ in my 03' along with a set of 100hp injectors. Along with NUMEROUS tranny and airflow upgrades. I have ordered a TST for the second time, (early units were throwing lots of codes and signaling delayed pilot injection...all fixed now) I can't wait to see what the TST stacked with the edge will do

As stated before, the TST will destroy a factory automatic tranny and will burn a clutch up very quickly if you aren't careful.

Only if you put it in mdes that you are not supposed to. I know it is hard to discipline yourself sometimes.

Dam that thing looks cool with the 22.5's on it. Keep all the info coming, he wont be able to read all of it till tomorrow when I get to work and log on but this is the most expensive thing he has ever had so I know he wants the best for it.

On the other hand I need to get a big truck to pull the Nor-Tech she is 25k lbs. with the trailer and the F350 hates it. I want to find an older truck in the 19k-26k lb. range either crew cab or sleeper for under $30k I only pull it about 5-10k miles a year so I don't want to spend a ton of cash. And I have a 00 F350 cc dually 4x4 loaded for sale, it has some stuff done to it 64k miles.

Personally used the Edge products programmer on my 6.0 powerstroke and love it, digital readout/moniter and can change programs on the fly. Had a superchips programmer on my old 7.3 powerstroke,(wasn't user friendly) had to reprogram everytime I hooked up the boat.

Law,

The 22.5 Alcoa's and tire package with adpaters run about 4K. I found a used set with low miles from a guy that sold a truck and removed them. Another $300 or so to balance them on the proper machine. Attached is a picture of a 2" spacer that replaces stock spacer in the front to accomodate the larger wheels and tires. The adapters are manufactured by Reds in Miami but most truck places sell the entire kit installed and get the adapters for you. My set had Dunlop tires by I would get the Michelins if I was buying new.

Thanks. Rides fine, Obviously not as good as stock but once the boat gets loaded it rides beautiful. All the Fords and Dodges in FL run the semi tires. Might not be so great in the snow for those up north though.
